A Post of Random Things. . .

This is just a post full of random things that we've done (so far!) this summer. Pretty much all of them un-posted pictures ;) And lots of flowers! 

Did I ever tell you all that we have a garden? We started it sometime early/middle June and it's been coming along very well!
All those baby plants were so cute! ;)
Tiger Lily insisted that we put the plants in orderly little rows. So we did our best to make it as straight as possible! Mom teased her a bit by planting her peppers in a zig-zag, but Tiger Lily straightened it out, later :)

Recently, Mom had to have a fence put around the boxes, since some chickens decided that they preferred the garden to the rest of the yard. They had already trampled the cantaloupe 3 times, stripped the broccoli of its magnificent leaves, and pecked the lettuce to a stumpy base!

Tiger Lily and I picked some peas a few days ago, and they were delicious! Crunchy and sweet, mmm! 

We've also gotten a few small tomatoes. They're so nice and smooth and juicy and red! I apologize for the poor quality of the picture, since it's a screenshot from the music video that Snow White and I did. 

Mom has found this very special plant called plantain (and no, it's not the banana kind) and she uses it quite often for cuts and bruises. I have to admit, it works very well!


Dare Devil was practising on his new bike, and he's really good at it too! I wouldn't be surprised if he was able to ride a two-wheeler by the end of summer!

These are a few pictures from the music video. Snow White had the camera for awhile as I was getting some stuff. She took some pretty good pictures!

The composition in this photo is exceptionally good! ;)

She also took a picture of her doll in a hair style that she had made up herself! 
Dare Devil blowing dandelion fluff all over the place!

Also, Ironman and Spiderman just recently got new monster trucks! They've been having a ton of fun with it!

(*in a whisper*) These particular trucks have also been seen chasing chickens back into their coop...

We've also done a lot of swimming lately...

 And gotten a nice dark tan because of it!

Cupcake time! :D

 On another note, Snow White just lost her second front tooth!

Going hyper over the cupcakes! (actually, I said that everyone had to make
a face before they could eat a cupcake :P)

Since we had some extra frosting left, we girls decided to experiment
and see if we could do a multi-coloured swirl. It came out a whole lot better
than we expected!

And more flowers!

  1. There are some really good pictures in this post, Blessing Counter! (And I liked the truck chasing the chickens into their pen. ;) ) I've never thought of icing a cupcake with mixed colors like that! It looks great!


Hi! Thanks for stopping by! :)
I LOVE comments, so please do leave one! I will try and reply as soon as possible :D If you comment under Anonymous, please leave a name (it can be made up or real, your choice ;)
Oh, and as you all probably know, my family and I are under pseudonyms (you didn’t really think I had a brother named Spiderman or Ironman, did ya? We’re weird, but not 'that' weird! :P) If you do know our real names, please don’t say it in the comment box. Public safety stuff ;) Thanks!

Finally, brothers (and sisters!), whatever is true, whatever is honourable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things
